I have a place holder on my report which holds a calculated value.
How do I access that placeholders value from another placeholder ?

Not sure if you can dynamically refer to one expression from another within the same scope.

If your intention is to have a calculated expression instantiated as a placeholder and duplicated elsewhere, you should consider using SSRS 2008 Report Variables to hold the calculated value as an expression and then use this Report Variable as many times as required..

Report variables can be declared at different scope levels.

The following link may be of help..
